A happy fathers’ day greeting to all of our readers who are fathers (and a reminder to reflect on the impact that your father had in your life).
I was quite fortunate. Unlike most guys, I was blessed with a father who always seemed to be the smartest guy I knew, the strongest guy I knew, and the guy who would always know how to fix anything that broke. Although my dear Dad is now in his seventies, I have no doubt that he could beat me arm wrestling and run circles around me in a debate.
My dear Dad didn’t just tell me what it meant to be a man—he showed me on a daily basis. Anything I learned about honor—about what it meant to live a life of integrity, to fear God, to embrace an ethos of honesty and goals that were greater than myself—I learned through his daily examples. And all of this was combined with a well developed sense of humor.
I only hope that my two sons view me as I view my father.
Good work, Dad! Happy Fathers’ Day and thank you for a job well done.
